Parks Officials Knew All Along, “Are You Kidding Me?”
SACRAMENTO – Assemblyman Brian Jones, R-Santee, today reacts to the recent detection of another stash of cash totaling almost $4 million by the California State Parks Department. The discovery last year of $54 million in a hidden special parks fund initiated an audit by the Department of Finance which unearthed the additional money. Parks officials have not kept track of the intended use for $3.9 million in donations to the department and have not credited interest to donation accounts for at least 15 years, the audit found. He states there is a need for government transparency so taxpayers know where every tax dollar is being spent.
The “Are You Kidding Me?” series consists of brief radio and television recordings on current state issues.
